Duration:5 minutes
we saw a ball of fire in the sky for 5 minutes, when it was gone military fighter jets converged on the area.

On February 16, 2012 at about 22:45 my mother, father, daughter, girlfriend and myself saw a very bright ball of fire in the southeastern sky. The object was very bright it pulsed and moved at a very rapid speed. In the five minutes or so we witnessed this object it moved from left to right across the sky until it was no longer visible. Then it came back into view moving right to left until it was out of sight. Then this object came back into view left to right and hovered in the southern sky before moving lower below our line of sight. Then it climbed back into our line of sight and continued to clime straight up into the sky until it was so high we could no longer see it. Then the object came back down to its starting point hovering in the sky about 100 feet above the tree line. At this point it just disappeared from view.

When it was gone we were all on the deck of my parent’s house wondering what we had just seen and that is when we heard the noise of an aircraft. Two military fighter jets flew over the house at very low altitude and converged on the area where we had seen the ball of fire. The jets made several passes over the area at very low altitude, so low that we could clearly see the lights inside the cockpit, a soft green glow.
